Organised camping trips

I am thinking of spending a couple of weeks in NS maybe in September. Ideally, I would like to go on an organised tour that stops off in towns along the way, getting on whenever the next bus comes along - something like the Moose Travel Bus in Quebec or the Kiwi experience in NZ. I don't really want to do a sea-kayaking or cycling tour but I see that is the most popular way of getting around!

Does anyone know of any such tours? thx

This kind of tour doesn't exist in Nova Scotia. I wish it did, since I don't drive. There's very little inter-city public transportation and most of what exists is geared to getting people into Halifax for shopping or doctors' appointments in the morning and returning to the small towns at night. You could look at this site:

That's the main intercity bus company that operates here.

A number of companies run 1 day tours to various parts of the province, so that's an alternative.

Trafalgar Tours offer several escorted package tours of the Maritimes. Maybe you can find what you're looking for there. Check www.tripcentral.ca.
